So I walked through my food list. I got to 'rice, brown'. Told me I had 400mg of rice in my 100g serving...but there is really only a trace of sodium in rice. Next up was my squash. Fitday had a whooping 800mg of sodium in my 140g serving. Again, there is little or no sodium in squash.

I have noticed this on a lot of the 'cooked' foods on fitday...they make assumptions that we are adding a ton of sodium and/or fat. When possible I will use the 'raw' food and add whatever fat I used while cooking instead or just using the 'cooked' version. (onions are a good example).

Bottom line, if you are really watching your sodium, make sure fitday is reporting your diet correctly.
I've noticed this too.
